Urban-based higher educational institutions often embrace an outreach mission that not only “gives back” to the community supporting the university but also fosters a relationship that may lead to recruiting local talent. This presentation examines what happens when that community engagement mission intersects with the library, and traditional and non-traditional partnerships are formed, offering information literacy a role in the goal of helping high school and middle school students prepare to succeed in college.
